A Sunday Oreo Afternoon :)

Image
I have no plans of going out on Sunday because I wanted to sleep and rest for the whole day until my brother, Azrael and I were chatting and he told me if I would like to visit Oreo's event in Megamall because he could not make it to cover the event. Since the venue is in Megamall, I immediately confirmed and prepare myself. The team he said was inside A.Venetto and I introduced myself.


After eating the merienda, I went to the booths to checked out the activities. There were word games, hit the ball challenge, face painting and the most controversial - be a human oreo and dunked yourself! 



I enjoyed watching parents and their children wearing their 'oreo' costumes and hit themselves on the wall to take a souvenir photos.


The event ended fulfulling the mission of tighten the family bond and ofcourse, enjoyed eating oreo as their favorite snack.

What a Week!

Image
After working twelve hours straight last friday, i'm still energized. My week just started by attending the Technopreneur's Secret Revealed, a Entrep-Summit seminar (thanks to JCI Manila). The speakers were different fields a more combined entrepreneurship and technology. Defining our own strengths and weaknesses in our business is very challenging. Yes, we can minimize the failures but what the most important thing to do is to plan carefully and never get tired of evaluating to try your ideas.

Am sharing the slides they used and this is very helpful to each one of us specially for those who would like to start their business online. Primarily, what you need is to think of something that you love to do and formulate ideas on how you are going to do it. How you are going to succeed? Well, honestly, we have different formulas to use. Strategies may be differ from one another but on how you are going to interpret it is the question.

-Start with the one you love doing
-Think of uniqu…

Twist, Lick, and Get Dunked!

Image
If it takes three steps to do the twist, lick, and dunk habit of enjoying OREO cookies, you only need one giant leap to be thrilled by the whole new dunking experience at OREO Get Dunked!



“OREO Get Dunked! is our celebration for adding the 5-peso OREO Snack Pack to our family. With the handy OREO Snack Pack, everyone can bring their favorite OREO cookies anytime and anywhere, or even put them inside their pockets,” Carlo Licuanan, Kraft Foods Philippines Marketing Manager for Biscuits shares. “As we jumpstart the fun of OREO Get Dunked! here in SM Megamall, we want everybody to celebrate with us by participating in our activities.”

OREO Get Dunked! will tour around the malls in the metro. It highlights a giant Velcro wall, where OREO fans can become human Oreos.


“More than enjoying the Twist, Lick, and Dunk routine, we want everyone to feel the spirit of the brand in a more exciting way – by jumping and sticking on a giant Velcro wall as human Oreos,” Licuanan says.
Apart from being a hum…

About Entrep Summit

About Entrep Summit

For the three years now, JCI Manila (Manila Jaycees) has been staging the Entrep Summit – a gathering of prominent entrepreneurs from different fields who share their experience and life lessons in the hopes of encouraging or inspiring individuals to pursue their entrepreneurial aspirations.  This year’s Entrep Summit titled “Click! Technopreneurs’ Secrets, Revealed!” will feature trailblazing entrepreneurs who have been successful in tech and digital media related endeavors.  This project encapsulates one JCI-Manila tenet that "economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise" and cement JCI Manila as a leadership organization actively participating in the business concerns of young leaders and entrepreneurs. Being the lifeblood of the Philippine economy, the SMEs should consciously adapt and grow with market changes and take steps to attaining their business goals - thus coining the term "Entrep Summit".

Stress Free Weekend!

It's weekend and a perfect time to release our one week stress from work.
Luckily, I still got 2 GCs from The Spa. I called Acropolis branch and scheduled an appointment for a relaxing weekend.

My friend and I chose two services:

Oriental Acupressure and Aromatherapy Massage

Oriental Acupressure is an ancient art of healing that applies slow but firm pressure on head, shoulders, arms and feet to reduce tension and promote wellness (60 minute session) while Aromatherapy Massage uses essential oils and suited to reduce or release stress and improves emotionally-related conditions such as insomnia, headache, digestive disorders, PMS, backpains.

As we walked inside, changed our clothes, ginger tea was served.

I took a quick shower and then headed to the massage room.

I feel like I'm relieved, a stress-free feeling. It's unexplainable.

Hopefully, I can visit a Spa every other month.

The Spa Acropolis is located at Acropolis center, Acropolis Green Subd, E Rodriguez Jr Avenue, Libis, Que…

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ Inception directed by the highly acclaimed Christopher Nolan is the most talked about movie of the moment. Everyone’s been buzzing about the film’s mind blowing scenes, exceptional effects, and excellent storyline.
The film starring multiple Oscar nominee Leonardo Di Caprio opened in multiple IMAX screens on its worldwide release last July 15.

"Inception is a film that asks the audience to come on a journey into the human mind – its going to be an incredibly immersive experience, and in IMAX, they are going to get the best version of that…we have done all kinds of things to re-format the film for The IMAX Experience, and as a result, you get enhanced clarity, sound and a closer relationship with the action. I think IMAX is going to be a really amazing way to see Inception." Director Christopher Nolan said in an interview.

IMAX Corporation and Warner Bros. Pictures International are both confident to bring to audiences a truly immers…
